Knievel will be jumping three school buses parked bumper to bumper, the equivalent of 180 feet on his Honda CR-500 motorcycle. Kaptain Robbie Knievel is the son of the late daredevil Robert Craig Knievel, better known as Evil Knievel, who was known for his acrobatic motorcycle jumps. The younger Knievel has amassed quite a following of his own, completing over 250 professional jumps and setting 20 world records. Jackson Rancheria owns and operates the successful Jackson Rancheria Casino and Hotel in Jackson, California, that employs more than 1,800 people, making it the largest employer in Amador County. A federally recognized Indian tribe, the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians is a sovereign government dedicated to developing projects that not only enhance their ability to remain self reliant, but are consistent with a commitment to be a good neighbor. Knievel’s jump is Thursday, September 10 at 6pm. Staff Report This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
